Joining Sneevly and Jimh425 in the 1B club soon

It's taken about two years of folding 24x7 with an ever increasing quantity of GPUs but I'll soon be hitting the 1 billion milestone!

I'm quite surprised at how well all of my hardware has held up. The only mishap was a power supply on one rig that actually caught fire, and thankfully I was present to deal with that! It taught me to buy quality components and not to screw around with running computers under stressful conditions 24x7.

Here's to the next billion!

It's been quite impressive how fast you got there! Congratulations early.

Windows 10 update "fixed" my folding if you are wondering why I've been down the past few days! Hopefully, the Nvidia update fixes it since the Windows 10 update broke it!

Jimh425,
Which version of Win10 are you on? If you're on Pro you can turn off driver updates via Windows and keep running 372.70 which will give you the best PPD performance.

I think it is Pro on that system, but I'll take a look.

In any case, it seems to be folding now.
